Come Back Shack is all about fresh, delicious hand-made food at an amazing value. We hand-patty fresh, never-frozen, USDA ground chuck. Our chicken sandwiches are all-natural, and our chicken tenderloins are fresh, never-frozen, hand-breaded, and all-natural. We hand-cut fresh potatoes for our fries and fresh sweet potatoes for our sweet potato chips. We make our sauces from scratch daily. Our milkshakes are made with premium real ice-cream and hand spun in a dozen flavors. We go to the extra effort to serve the best, tastiest, freshest food to our guests because we know you care about what you eat. It's the kind of food we love, and we enjoy fixing for others. We look forward to seeing you

Come Back Shack is popular for its burger, chicken sandwich, fries, and shake menu. Its proprietors have organized drive-through take out thoughtfully with a mobile phone link to its menu, traffic direction to help driving in, and a socially-distanced person taking orders.
